The Yankee year foretold

Last year when Pitchers and Catchers reported, I nailed my prediction that the Yankees would win the world series. This year, I'll do it again.

I mean, they are unstoppable. Incredible pitching, wonderful hitting and defense like a brick wall. Here's the people we added to our roster

  • Traded for Curtis Granderson
  • Signed Nick Johnson
  • Singing Randy Winn (an Omen)
  • Resigned Andy Pettite
  • Traded for Javier Vazquez

With the additions of Johnson and Vazquez, it's back to the 2004 team almost!

But we also lost some people over the offseason.

  • Traded Austin "The Man" Jackson and Phil Coke to Detroit
  • Traded Melky Cabrera to Atlanta (You can have him!)
  • Did not sign Johnny Damon- signed with Detroit
  • Did not sign Hideki Matsui- signed with California, or Anaheim, or whatever
  • Did not sign Chien Ming Wang (a bad sign for my dentist and the country of Taiwan)- signed with Washington (I'm so sorry)
  • Did not sign Matt Holliday even though the were GOING to- he signed with St. Louis.

But you know who we still have?

  • Derek Jeter
  • Alex Rodriguez
  • CC Sabathia
  • The Sandman, Mariano Rivera
  • Mark Teixiera
  • Jorge Posada
  • Robinson Cano
  • Andy Pettite
  • AJ Burnett
  • Joba "The Hutt" Chamberlain
  • Nick Swisher
  • Phil Hughes
  • and 27 World Championship trophies

  1. No way. The Pirates are taking it this year. The 17 year losing season streak is coming to an end.
